Hidden Bellhorn Attachment

Had to re-do the attachment for the rudder cable to the hidden bellhorn.  The original builder had permanently attached the cable using sheet aluminum with a bunch of pop-rivets.  I had to cut the cable when removing the rudders, and there was no way to attach a new one.  Plus it was binding, so I wanted to re-do it per plans.

Fabricated new steel tabs per plans, and cut the holes in the wings to line everything up without binding, then permanently attached with solid rivets.

Fixed a little hangar rash too while the wing was upside down.
